A tragedy, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
The 52-year-old woman, Chang divorced seven years ago, her ex, Huang threatened that he will kill her kids, in order to protect her family, she’d still lived with her ex, and put up with his abuse, yesterday morning, Huang got angered at breakfast, threw his breakfast onto the floor, and told her to pick it up, she had had enough, she’d added half a spoonful of agricultural poison into her husband’s milk, and, Huang died instantly.
An hour later, Chang called the police and turned herself in, she’d said, in a trembling voice, “I, I, I…killed someone”, when the police were taking down her statement, she couldn’t stop crying, as she’d told them, “he’d abused me endlessly, after I married him, I just kept getting beaten up, threatened, I was truly in pain.”; the police booked Chang on murder charges yesterday, and, after the D.A. reviewed the case, they’d asked the courts for her incarceration.
The police investigated and found, that Chang and her husband were six years apart, with a son and a daughter, and the couple wasn’t getting along, seven years ago, they’d agreed on divorce. The neighbors said, that in his earlier days, Huang was a driver, he has a bad temper, later, because he was diagnosed with diabetes and had retinal problems, and it might be because how he was ill for so long, and without a job, in recent years, his abuse on his wife exacerbated, he’d slapped her across the face, beaten her up, and use verbal abuse. In order to protect her family, Chang didn’t ask the courts for a restraining order.
Yesterday morning, Chang was once again, grilled by her ex, she got angered, and added a half-spoonful of agricultural poison into his milk, after Huang drank it, he felt that something in the milk tasted weird, asked her, “what did you add, drink it yourself.” Chang ignored him, shortly thereafter, Huang fell down to the ground, and started foaming at the mouth, an hour later, Chang called the police and turned herself in.
“She’s truly a nice woman, would smile at everybody”, the neighbors, after they were told of what Chang did to her ex, they were all shocked, “She’d prepared his breakfasts and lunches every single day before she heads off to work, and, after she gets off, she’d always brought two packed meals home”, but when Huang feels off, he’d beaten her up, “it’s truly awful!”
The son of the deceased told the police, that the agricultural poison was bought by his father, to poison the stray dogs; and Chang said, that the poison was found, four months earlier in the drawer, and yesterday morning when her ex threw all the breakfasts onto the ground, and told her to clean it up, she’d cracked, plus, all the sufferings that were accumulated from before all burst, that, was why she’d murdered him.
Chang’s older brother said, that after his brother-in-law fell ill, he was without a job, and his younger sister carried the household economic burdens all on her shoulders, and, when Huang couldn’t get money from her, he’d headed over to where she worked, and made a scene, and, when he couldn’t find his wife, he’d threatened to take the lives of their children, “by killing him, my sister had sacrificed herself, to save the rest of her family”, he’d sighed, “my sister never had it easy!”
Had this woman taken out a restraining order, then, maybe things would’ve been different, but, she didn’t, and, you CAN imagine how much pent-up anger, how much ABUSE she must’ve endured, for her, to finally CRACK like that, can’t you??? And now, her kids will have no parents to accompany them, it’s a tragic tale…
